A Red Letter Day!
At least for Newt.
Today was the day The Beagle Caught The Rabbit! Crack of dawn this AM, the Newt-ster asked to go out to her run. She never just "goes outside;" she's far too tactical for that. First, she sticks her nose out the doggie door and sniffs at great length…then her head, with her tail down and body tensed, just in case. Finally, she slithers out the door, ready for action. This morning it was strictly sniff, BAAAAAAYYYYYYY!
The stupid bunny had crept into the extremely well fenced run. Lotsa baying; lots bunny smacking against the fences; lots Michael running around getting dressed, finding shoes, racing outside to sort it out. The bunny finally froze in the face of the savage apex predator, who kept poking the bunny with her nose to get it to continue the most excellent chase game. Beagles are trackers, not catchers. Nothing's more boring than a rabbit who just sits there.
Well, it'll definitely get your Sunday off on a dead run!
